I had much rather rub the wrin
kles from the brow and beguile the
heart of sorrow than to'alk of pol.
itics or speculate upon the times.
The merry country parties have
begun in e:rnest and the young poo. I

season of falltime o be disturbed by t

- Just how the young people can
make such words ring with such a
merry jirigle and just why there
should be every now and tho a
burst of happy laughter one must
attend to understand. Seemingly
there would be nothing in such songs
but watch the young folks and hear

change that thrown him with her.
Anyhow, one play after anothor is
iroduced till late in the night, t
when supper is announced, and then
comes a scene of lively scramble
and happy merriment. Nothing
formal is thought of at these par
ties, but the young people go to the
table in couples and the meal is gen
erally gone through with standIng,
all waiting u5on themselves. Pie,
custsrds, cakes, meat* and chicken
are piled up on the table and a more
cheerful mnil..wais -never partaken of
by'euy Qrdwd or anywhere.
We felt at home at brother Cook's,
and we made good use of our time
*there. Of course Brown eat, prin-.
cipally, but. I enjoyed myself
best.in looking around andlabout me.

a light, just as they used to, and
pegs which have borne the sausage

I, wish that .all the people every

sweets at a Georgia country party
and mingle with the people who yet
preserve the~ good old ways.
.Next to the country parties I put
corn shuekings as places of pleasure.
These shuokings will soon begin and
such a crop was never seen before.
